“Far-left model Chrissy Teigen walking to the White House correspondents dinner with her servants trailing behind her to hold her dress,” Rugg tweeted. “This is what peak liberalism looks like.” (Rugg noted in a subsequent tweet that he toned down the language in the above tweet, swapping out “slaves” for “servants.”) The comments under the tweet excoriated Teigen, unsurprisingly. Indeed, it’s a pretty bad look for someone like Teigen, who so often decries the elitism in this world that’s always holding someone or entity down, to treat these three women so… materially. But then again, this is hardly the first time Teigen’s character has come into genuine question. Who could ever forget her peak hypocrisy during the much ballyhooed Goya-gate of 2020? For the unaware, Goya Foods came under intense scrutiny in 2020 when its CEO dared to utter a milquetoast compliment about then-President Trump. Teigen, swept up in the leftist zeitgeist, vowed to boycott Goya foods. That facade came crashing down rather abruptly. Now, perhaps there’s a point to be made here about extending Teigen some grace. Who knows what the full story behind those poor plebeians holding her dress was? Maybe those three women have dreamed their whole lives about carrying the back of Teigen’s dress en route to a White House event. But as gracious as it would be to offer Teigen’s latest viral video the benefit of the doubt, it’s hard to blame anyone who would struggle to find said grace for Teigen. After all, she certainly showed no such grace when she lambasted former first lady Melania Trump as a “wifebot” and called Trump a “loser wimp” in 2020 — virtually unprovoked, no less. So no. There’s little reason to give someone as nasty and vindictive as Teigen the benefit of the doubt or any modicum of grace in this instance. Conservatives are simply reacting to the Teigen video in the exact way she would’ve reacted to an identical video of Donald and Melania Trump. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
